    The tomb of Ramses II was closed. It was King Tut’s tomb that did not live up to your expectations

    I think this is my favorite trip report ever. What was the food like?

    Thanks for the reminders on which were closed/disappointing. I’m glad one of us was paying enough attention there.

    As for the food, mostly it wasn’t great. Finding anything that resembled “local” cuisine was very difficult throughout the five days we were there. It was only once we got to Luxor that we had even a chance. We had a pretty mediocre dinner while trying to locate a restaurant on the West Bank of the Nile that was recommended. The ferry ride and walking around the West Bank was fine but the dinner that night was just OK. The tw restaurants noted above – Sofra and Casablanca – were quite good. If you’re in Luxor they would be the primary choices/recommendations for decent food.
